It looks like Simon Cowell has got his way yet again as it's been reported that Louis Walsh will make a return to next series of The X Factor.
Simon is thought to have been battling ITV bosses over the lineup for the tenth series of the popular show.
Apparently the deal came down to the agreement that Simon would allow Gary Barlow back on the show if he wanted Louis to stay.
According to The Sun, insiders say a tentative "peace deal" has been made.
ITV execs have already told Louis he is safe and the Irishman is now said to be excited about completing a tenth season of the singing show.
A friend of Louis said, "He's been told by the heads of entertainment at ITV that he's coming back and (executive producer) Richard Holloway has also said he'll be back.
"Obviously he wants to see the contract in his hand but everyone who has the power to make a decision on it has said he's coming back so if that changes something very odd has gone on.
"Normally it's Simon who upsets the apple cart at the last minute but he's been desperate to keep Louis on the show so he's unlikely to give him the axe.
"He's always said he wants to do ten series of the show."
Louis has reportedly been keen to make it to the tenth year after hearing his BFF Sharon Osbourne has been offered Tulisa's position.
